A statue of a bare-breasted woman, one of a pair of busts designed by Bernini, comes under close scrutiny at the Sant’Isidoro Church in central Rome on October 22, 2002. The figures, representing truth and charity, designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and sculpted with his assistants in the 1660s for the Baroque church, were censored as they were considered too provocative for Victorians. The bronze corsets which covered the nudes since 1863 have only now been taken off to reveal the true beauty of the work. REUTERS/Giampiero Sposito
